Supporting Independence in Children with SEN

This webinar will focus on practical, evidence-based strategies to support independence development in children with SEN. This will span a range of domains including learning, behaviour and life skills. This webinar would be particularly suitable for SNAs, given the focus within their role on this core concept. However, teachers would also benefit from this learning.
